Holmdel patient does not have Coronavirus

The Bayshore Medical Center patient who was being monitored for Coronavirus has tested negative for the bug that has disrupted the world, the NJ Department of Health announced.

The announcement means that there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in New Jersey and that there are no others being monitored.

Monmouth County Deputy Freeholder Director Sue Kiley, the liaison to the  Heath Department, announced the good news on her facebook page and asked that the news be shared.

Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso announced the good news on twitter and urged citizens to wash our hands, cover our mouths when we cough or sneeze, and stay home from work if you’re sick.

“Most New Jersey residents are at low risk for novel coronavirus,” said Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli in an announcement from the Governor’s office. “If individuals are having symptoms, the illness is much more likely to be caused by common respiratory viruses such as flu or the common cold.”

“The Department continues to remind residents to take necessary precautions to protect themselves from all respiratory viruses, such as washing their hands frequently, covering coughs and sneezes, and staying home when sick,”said Persichilli.

“The care team at the hospital followed the protocols established by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, ensuring the patient was isolated and treated appropriately. We are very appreciative of all the efforts of the hospital team members and medical staff,” said Robert C. Garrett, FACHE, CEO, Hackensack Meridian Health.“We extend our best wishes to this patient for a speedy recovery.”

    nice try at again trashing the guy just trying to fix big messes, against incredible odds: what, you would sign up with an ancient crazy communist, or another ancient re- tread, who clearly is ( probably physically and mentally) not well??

    Are you just a partisan hack or are you actually mentally deficient? Asking for a friend.

    glad to see you reflect those you must support: the most ignorant among us always go right to personal attacks on fellow commenters. Pay my share of all the increased taxes if any Dem wins, please, and go have a drink or get some fresh air away from your nasty keyboard name- calling. (Just answering for a friend..)
